Dough recipe


Pierogi dough is made from wheat flour, water, eggs and salt.

Water should be cold, as it keeps moisture longer, the dough does not dry for a long time and well sticks together when cooking.

The dough should be of medium density, because thick dough is difficult to roll out, and it is difficult to make dumplings from it. To make a semicircular dumpling, use a glass to cut circles of dough, put the filling in the middle and glue the edges of the dumpling.


3 cups of wheat flour

0.75 cup of water

1 egg

0.5 teaspoon of salt.


As Dmytro Martseniuk notes, if you want to taste pierogi in the very heart of New York, you will definitely like his brand recipe.
